Tecumseh Local Schools also failed to get its 5-year, 12.37-mill levy passed, with unofficial results showing that 54 percent of the voters rejected the measure. The district could face an operating deficit of over $7 million by 2017.

Miami Valley School Levies A Mixed Bag In Nov. 5, 2013 Election

As in past years, new or additional taxes and levies for Miami Valley school districts proved more difficult to pass than renewals. Almost all renewals passed, with the exception of Jefferson Township, which defeated a renewal levy for the schools' operating expenses.
